Hazard A Guess: Week of Aug. 13, 2009


Hello from Hazard!

OK, we’ve been listening to the sounds of silence on item No. 869, the tool submitted by R.E. Carper of Canton, Ohio. No one has responded with a guess or a peep.

There are markings on it: “DE-SIA Co. Model # 465-B”, but that’s all we know about it.

We’re going to have to be like the auctioneer’s chant: Going once, going twice, GONE. This is the last week we’ll show it, and we’ll also show a new item, Item No. 870, shared by Carl Geib of North Canton, Ohio, and his brother-in-law, Sam Lech.


Item No. 870
